Sealing pavers immediately after installation decreases chances of getting displaced or disfigured. The pavers set in sand move and adjust so in case a piece of pavers is chipped off in the process immediately replace it. So keeping a few extra pavers in stock is a good idea in case the particular design suddenly goes off the market. You dont want to ruin a perfectly symmetrical patio with one mismatched paver. If the pavers are laid on sand check them annually to see if the pieces have sunk. Brush in sand in the space in between them if necessary. The sand in the joints should be half as high as the level of the pavers. Sealing concrete in between prevents this problem.
Paver manufacturers are in business to produce as many pavers as quickly and as efficiently as they can. When they have to shut the system down to change out shape molds and adjust machinery to accommodate thin paver thickness they lose a lot of valuable production time. It can take hours to switch from one mold to the next. Additionally since thin pavers arent ordered as often the order quantities are frequently less and the manufacturer is forced to produce less pavers per mold and color. This inefficiency causes increased costs for the producers and they pass those costs on to their customers. So even though thin pavers use fewer raw materials to be produced they take up more time and time is money.
Your job does not end with sealing pavers. You have to clean pavers regularly because damp weather makes pavers absorb moisture from the environment along with dust and can spoil the show of your pavement. So clean them and mop them regularly. Avoid using any highly concentrated chemicals that damage the environment. Always look for natural formulae for cleaning. You can use a high pressure cleaner and spray the pavers with salt water. For cleaning stains that are lighter a solution of detergent and warm water would be advisable. However stains of petrol or oil will not dissolve in water or soap. You can use a commercial product available in the market under the guidance of a professional. Another way of cleaning oil or petrol stains is the use of kitty litter on pavers on the previous night and sweep off the next day.
Choose from hexagonal rectangular octagonal or square styles. These types of pavers are exceptionally durable and can last well over several decades. Another type of paver is a turf paver. These hollow pavers are installed using a grid system with a concrete or recycled plastic foundation. Upon installation of this grid also referred to as a "honeycomb" system gravel and topsoil are added inside. The pavers making up these grids encourage the growth of grass over the structure which creates an incredibly strong pavement made of turf or grass. These eco-friendly pavers are used to reduce the erosion of the soil and are a great "green" alternative to 100% concrete pavements.
